Circular Variety

I walked this circular route from Craster once with Trooper and we found that the path cuts straight across livestock pastures. That day we were lucky with the cows and sheep but I didn't venture back. Today I was able to walk right by the cows without any problem.

17th June10, Craster to Howick and back, 8am

It's a walk of great variety: From the village you quickly head inland to farmland and woodland and then back to the coast.

The barley looks strong but has a bit of ripening to do.

At the coast and an example of diffraction as the waves pass between the rocks and spread out in a circular pattern. My physics teacher would love this! It's uncannily calm and warm and I'm not ashamed to say I nodded off briefly on a bench to the sound of the Kittiwakes' endless chatter.

Good morning, Andy!

I hope the weather in your part of the world is much better than the "holy shit" we have currently in Germany.
This weekend so many outdoor activities should take place - like a rose exhibition or mediaeval fayre. But it's rainy cats and dogs at the moment... ;-((

I thought bad weather spoiling summer evenys was an English thing.

It's always a shame to see carefully planned events spoiled.
